Financial Aid

Tokai University has a scholarship system that is open to foreign students (excluding students completing the Japanese Language Course) which includes the Special Scholarship for International Students and the Matsumae Shigeyoshi Scholarship for International Students. With respect to off-campus scholarships, the Japan Student Services Organization provides scholarships from the national budget. Local public organizations and private groups also provide scholarships. In many cases, scholarship applications require documents such as an academic transcript, a diploma, and a degree certificate from the school the applicant graduated from. Applicants should therefore prepare these documents before coming to Japan.
